Removal Of Microtransactions

Announcement ⋅ November 15, 2017


Those who have been following the recent events concerning EA and Battlefront II, will know what this is about. Heroes are locked behind a massive paywall (or a very long grind), making the game essentially pay to win. We've all heard the public's opinion on this, and we agree.

While Scuttlers was never pay to win, there was the option to pay for cosmetics with real life money. It has been made loud and clear that even when people have the option to unlock these in-game items purely by playing, the fact that they are attainable by paying money, made acquiring them feel like less of an achievement.

The Changes We'll be making

  • The option to buy cosmetics with real money will be completely removed.
  • It's as simple as that. Cosmetics will only be attainable by unlocking them with Scuttle Points.

  • The amount of Scuttle Points you earn each game, will be increased.
  • We'll be doubling the amount of Scuttle Points you receive after a game. This should make unlocking cosmetics less of a grind, and leave us some room to add very rare cosmetics. It should also give more value to the special cosmetics like the Forest Mastery Cape.
